On September 29, AMC aired the final episode of "Breaking Bad," thus ending the shocking tailspin of turning Bryan Cranston's Walter White from, as creator Vince Gilligan likes to say, Mr. Chips into Scarface.

The drama has been an Emmy darling, most recently receiving the top dramatic series nod at the 2013 Emmy Awards, so it shouldn't be a surprise that Hollywood insiders joined other fans on social media to say goodbye to "Breaking Bad." Here, we've captured a few of our favorite Twitter reactions to the series finale.

Thank you, Vince Gilligan, for conceiving & executing the most bizarre love story I've ever seen. #GoodbyeBreakingBad--

Anyone else thought of chaining Vince Gilligan in a barn to make him come up with another show?--
